Bass Drum: 1-ply vs 2-ply

I've been trying out both the original Powermax and the new PowerMax2 and I can't really decide which one I prefer so I wanted to get your opinion on it. Which do you prefer and why? The heads provided are just examples of each of these, but feel free to comment with something else.

As with anything, its a personal preference. I make all my selections based on sound quality, ease of maintenance, and cost.

Make sure when you are judging the sound of any drum/head combo, you need to stand back from the drum and get more of an audience perspective.
Without a metronome its not drumming, its just hacking.
